'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Regarding the letter “Sensationalize this” (Aug. 12) by Alan Martin on the Trayvon Martin case: Why does the writer use the barbaric, cowardly act of a subhuman who shot an innocent baby to drop his theory bomb on race relations in this country?

The murder of Antonio West was sickening to anybody with any feelings. The 17-year-old monster who allegedly shot Antonio, De'Marquise Elkins, was arrested.

I hope they lock him up forever, which is still too good for him.

It's time for people in this country to realize it's about evil, not race. The problem is evil people perpetrate evil acts against those of all races. I'm sorry to say this is an evil world.

The real fight is good versus evil, but we Americans feel the need to sensationalize it.

I wonder if Mr. Martin would feel the same if Trayvon had been his son or someone in his family.
